" that sprung from the awful doldrums of the u.s. economy under jimmy carter apply stronger, more strongly today. >> house so click >> obama is the same kind of antibusiness president and insight president. same kind of managerial, interfering, strangling, surprising president jimmy carter was. >> you writing here about president obama. i want to get to the right page so i can quote it correctly, sir. you write under the obama administration that the u.s. had a morbid subversion of the infrastructures of its economy. the public sector has become a manipulative forest, aggressively intervening in the venture and financial sectors with guarantees and subventions that attract talent and debunking. >> the worst of this is the korean cast of the obama administration. the epa now has gained control over everything. see so to have been deemed a pollution, dangerous to the environment in co2 is of course that these plans. they attempt to surprise or two epitomize the anti-nature, enterprise spirit of this administration. the reason we need another supply-side revival of the same kind we had under ronald
of the excheck kerr. >> mr. speaker, it's taking time, but the british economy is healing. [laughter] after the biggest financial crash of our lifetime, people know that we face each problem at home and abroad. at home we live with the decades of debt and the failure to equip britain to compete in the modern world. and we face a multitude of problems from abroad. the u.s. fiscal cliff, the slowing growth in china, above all the eurozone now in recession. people know that there are no quick fixes to these problems, but they want to know that we are making progress, and the message from today's autumn statement is that we are making progress. it is a hard road, but we're getting there, and britain is on the right track. >> will the chancellor resume his seat. now, look, let's be clear about this. the house knows well enough by now that i will afford a very full opportunity for questioning of the chancellor. but the more interruption, the greater the noise, the longer the session will take, and that cannot be right. so i appeal to members, please, to give the chancellor a courteous hearing as,
answer in today's economy" elizabeth ames, first of all, tell us about yourself and your personal experience, particularly when it comes to economics. >> i've been a finance journalist, but i've also been on both sides of the press release. so i started as a journalist and have my own pr business and they've also done projects, communication projects with clients. among them, co-authored the book. basically i were to steve forbes and conversations led to the idea for this book. >> how did you meet steve forbes? >> i met him at an event i did when i was working in southern california and one thing led to another. i moved back to new york. i am from new york and started working at "forbes" of the pr department. >> elizabeth ames, or practical experience, how do that that? >> i've learned a lot since "forbes." when i sat "forbes" islandwide about markets. again, i began as a journalist and worked at "businessweek" many years ago as a journalist. but when i started to work as an entrepreneur, i learned about the fact that you really need to have economic freedom to create jobs. someth
's the system, stupid. and we live and work in this system of political economy. america's operating system, if you will, that's delivering terrible results. i look at the international comparisons, for example, i've looked at the 20 leading democracies, the old oecd, and i looked at 30 key indicators of national well being and global citizenship, and i was startled, frankly, to find that the united states is at the bottom, the very bottom or next to the bottom on all 30 of these indicators of national performance. so it follows that if we want to change the direction the country's headed and build this attractive future for our children and grandchildren, we were going to have to change the system. we've got to drive this systemic, transformative change until we have, in effect, the new system of political economy, a new operating system for america, one that delivers good results for human and natural communities, but otherwise we've got to embed new and different priorities at the core of our political economy. and to do that, i think we've first got to understand what are the elements o
've had time to you think the country's economy will improve? 51% say it will improve. economic well being of the middle class -- catch up with my slides. there we go. the deficit and debt will improve as 34%. but the one thing they are certain is that taxes will increase. and in the next four years how it affected you think the federal government will be on each of the following issues. we read a list of these issues, we rotated those. this is how it basically stacks up. ensuring long-term future of entire programs such as social security and medicare, 65%. 64% creating jobs, 64% improving public education, growing the economy, creating a business environment that allows for innovation. lowering the federal deficit actually false down to 40. not as much confidence there as a part on the other side. we been said the training faces a number of challenges including but not limited to large budget deficits, national debt, slower economic recovery, high unemployment, deep political divide on many issues. do you believe we will overcome these challenges in the foreseeable future as we've done i
will be blamed. remember, this is the obama era. it's going to go down as his economy. i ask people who was speaker of the house during the great depression when roosevelt was president. i'll give a hundred dollars to anyone who can name who the speaker of the house was in the critical first hundred days -- >> jim over there would know. >> henry thomas reigny. now, there's a name in the history books. point being, the speaker is an important player, this is significant, but it is obama's job to lead and define so if there's negative consequences here, particularly in the economy, it's going to be in the obama era, things didn't get fixed. who is it? the australian finance minister who says the united states is one budget deal away from being a great country. there's a lot of people in business who think we are poised to do some really good things in the global economy, the united states is, but if we can't untangle this mess, it's not going to happen. >> you know about the inner workings in the government more than any living person, every single administration of our lifetime. you've b
emerging economy. we asked about the report the government makes for business and enterprise. it is fair to say that his answer has captured the imagination of all political parties that will respond formally in the spring. so here's what we will do now. first, government spending should be alone with the business community. we will provide new money to support the partnerships. from april 2015, the governmental elites one of the funding and get people back to work. the gross funds are having businesses get back into the game. we are going to support businesses and technologies where britain has a clear technology advantage. we will extend our global lead in aerospace and support the supply chain for advanced infection. we've also support british companies to new emerging markets in asia and africa and the americas. and increasing the funding for the uk by over 25% a year. so they can help more firms build the capacity of overseas british chambers and maintain our country's position as the number one destination in europe for foreign investment. we are launching a new 1.5 billion pounds
is going to take a more, i would say rational approach to how to deal with their own economy and how they deal with their own people, and how they deal internationally. and so i think generally there's been a feeling that there might be some hope there. however, now we are approaching, once again, a potential violation of a u.n. security council resolution, and we encourage the leadership in north korea to consider what they are doing here and implications in the overall security environment on the korean peninsula, as well as destination. >> anything new? we been hearing some rumblings for some time that there might be some activity on that front. anything new that you can provide in terms of insights into launches or things like that? >> well, i think you're tracking a pretty well. i think from the media today there are indications declared indications of their intention to do what they would call a peaceful satellite launch. and we believe it is in contradictory to the u.n. security council resolutions, that because of the nature of the type of missile they will be firing and the
the kinds of revenue from the wealthiest americans to help the economy grow and achieve deficit reduction and this puts us on a path towards a better economy. >> [inaudible question] what will he do at this moment? >> i would simply redirect that question to the republican leaders, who to this day, have not put forward any proposal on how they would achieve revenues and address the issue on the top 2%. there is no other way to do it, there is no other mathematically sound way to do it. making vague promises about achieving revenue through capping deductions were closing loopholes, it simply doesn't add up to a serious proposal. we haven't heard which deductions they would cap or which loopholes they were close. what is true is that other proposals that have been put forward include attempts to raise revenue only through closing loopholes and limited deductions can only achieve this if the middle class gets stuck with the bill. or if you have a proposal that is wildly limply unfeasible because it suggests that we would wipe out charitable deductions. it is simply impossible and getting som
of the biggest thing is that is killing the economy is something so big you got to say to yourself how come they can't take a little bit less to back up on its seat? >> guest: i am going to disagree with you a little bit. if you look at the percentage of investment, the exploration production of energy is very heavily involved, it is a very expensive item, and their profits are five to 8% on what they actually invest. microsoft and intel are much more profitable and they pay less in taxes than the percentage of the total revenue. so, people always focus on the gas prices. look at your heating bill. the natural gas movement brought down the price of natural gas about 80% of what we produce in terms of my state. it's about a quarter of what it was three years ago. that isn't always a good deal for the american people. it's actually bringing the industry back. this industry which is often vilified quite frankly is the one that is generating more jobs, more income, more opportunity than almost any other sector and it isn't as profitable as the high-tech. >> host: nelson in colorado springs. >>
about the economy. how about economy. let's find economy. >> feel free to turn in. >> we're almost done. >> economics, science of explaining where all the money went. the field of economics is divided into two main categories , microeconomics with examines why stephanie was here a minute ago and macro, with such a the economy as a whole to determine have that much money can this be done . analyzed it to study wine making money to replace the money the disappeared is not going to work. the best course of action is to reject the idea that the money is really down and carry on like nothing happened. other theories argued the only way to fix this is-the people at the most money to share with everyone else. except that money is never coming back and everybody pantages to use to it. >> bill clinton. let's do it. >> bill clinton, 42nd president of the united states his popular appeal nearly provoked house republicans to impeach him for conduct in his personal life, an unprecedented move that would have made a mockery of the u.s. constitution and was therefore quickly dismissed as a level with
that this is a self-inflicted wound on our economy, you're exactly right, our current policy. we're educating brilliant students and then compelling them to go to work in shanghai or singapore rather than san antonio or the silicon valley. meanwhile, we're handing out tens of thousands of diversity visas to immigrants chosen by a random lottery, without regard to any qualifications they might when it comes to job creation and entrepreneurship. it makes absolutely no sense. i believe we need an immigration policy that serves our national interest. and if there's one thing that we need more than anything else now is we need job creators and entrepreneurs in the united states. and we know in the -- in the global economy, it's people with the special skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics are the ones that are going to help us create jobs and grow the economy. not just for these individuals, but for the people that are hired by the start-up businesses that they will create. the stem jobs act would mitigate the problem with the diversity lottery visa which, again, does not dist
actors. we can prove that america is still the leader of a global economy. people are watching. do we still have it. or, we can let a instruction is an and stagnation turn this country that we all love so much into a second place state. i spent a few days last fall meeting with the european leaders as they are about a week meeting of finance ministers, head of european commission, anybody can talk to try to get europe, both countries, as well as germany and finland, each with different points of view. also all the common view, they've got to find a way to work out all their differences to save the hero. and i believe they will. you can just see it, feel it, read between the lines, they are going to find a way. they will muddle through but they will find a way to get it done. these countries are also looking to us to be. and we need to lead. europe shows us the danger of uncertainty. we know the uncertainty just in this country. uncertainty leads businesses sitting at the sidelines. drags down investment economy, human capital, companies will postpone decisions next quarter. maybe the
the world as a very effective way of ensuring a decarbonization market driven way of our economy, and we've just published an energy bill and to let the control framework that would allow for new renewable investment to the rest of this decade. the industry has that, alongside the cast strategy. on the decarbonization target, as they say we're going to take a power in the bill to set a target but that would be a decision for after the next carbon budget which happens in 2016. that is a perfectly sensible and rational approach to take. >> cannot congratulate the chancellor on his statement that fair, transparent -- [shouting] >> is not only not rising but is falling in every year of this parliament? with 19 days to christmas, mr. speaker, can ask the chancellor which the family-friendly measures whether scrapping the fuel duty increase, freezing tax are raising the personal allowance next year he thinks will be most benefit for the family? >> what i would say to my honorable friend is with have to take some difficult decisions. we've had to take difficult decisions on welfare of bring alo
business with key sectors in the iranian economy, with energy and shipbuilding and shipping and ports, this amendment that would shut down businesses that are involved in sectors which fund the proliferation activities of iran, of that regime, is crucial. in addition, the amendment is going to prohibit business with all designated persons connected to the iranian government. it bans trade and commodities used, it is designed to stop iran from busting sanctions by receiving payment in gold or using oil payments in local currency to buy gold. we have got to stop an effort to water down these sanctions. i say that because i remember the votes in the past, i remember our effort on the central bank. it was only because we got unanimous votes because we got so much sport that we were able to deploy those. let me add there's another portion of the amendments here that targets the regime for their human rights abuses and i think one of the areas where we have really been short, for those of you who talked to those who have been in the prisons, who have experienced the torture, seen the murder
are an economy that is driven by consumer demand. i cannot think of anything that would be more guaranteed to put the economy in a recession than increasing the price of all goods and services that we purchase by 20-25%. >> host: we'll give brad on twitter the last word here. he says negotiate and simplify, let the republicans lower taxes and get rid of the amt. john buckley, thank you for your help this morning in helping us try to understand the alternative minimum tax, appreciate it. >> guest: okay, good. >> in a few moments, a discussion of house spending cuts in the so-called fiscal cliff. in a little less than an hour, more about the fiscal cliff with republican representative tom cole from oklahoma. then the head of fema testifies on capitol hill about the government's response to hurricane sandy. and later, senate debate on the u.n. treaty for the disabled. ♪ ♪ >> this weekend on c-span3's american history tv, follow harry truman easeleddest grandson to hiroshima as the city prepared to mark the bombing of the city in 1945. >> you know, everybody has their own view what happened, and
we can continue to develop policies to grow our economy through international trade and hopefully help advance the rule of law around the world. this is a good package that deserves our strong support. i urge -- i urge all of my colleagues to join in supporting this bill. i believe that we have got to do more in the international trade world. earlier, due to the efforts of the distinguished chairman, senator baucus and his staff and my staff, we were able to get the korean, colombian and panamanian treaties through. these were steps in the right direction after all these years. to have this happen is going to be a wonderful thing i think for our country and really for russia itself, and it certainly is going to help us go down the line in doing what's best for our own trade. one of the other special things that's in this is it's going to cause russia to have to live up to some international trade and international intellectual property laws, international laws, and we in this country believe in obeying those laws, and i have to say russia, india and china have invaded intellectual
our economy on sound footing for the future is not enough. we are calling for a framework to build out over the last ten years to reduce the deficit and restructure the fiscal policy. succumb as eventually to bring the budget into balance they must raise more revenue and encourage growth we must include parameters defined and future levels of debt as a share of the gdp and a date by which the budget will balance. and it must include changes to the discretionary spending, entitlements as well as defense. the elected leader should launch and extradited process to enact the legislation that will construct this remark in 2013 and putting powerful, the appropriate defaults and enforcement mechanisms. without a recalibrating sustainable fiscal policy, the united states international standing will decline and its national security will be undermined. such an outcome would be bad for the united states and in our view bad for the world. as pete said, she and i are joined here today with three distinguished individuals hoffa. we made a difference and had to come up with tough solutions to very c
look at the debt in the u.s. economy by the mid-90s there was more consumer debt and industrial that, so your integrating the working class. and you raise the question of international. a lot of the companies, financial companies that are investing in u.s. mortgages are coming from abroad. so it's international companies looking to u.s. markets because they are deep, safe in terms of protecting property. one thing i want to emphasize about volatility. sometimes when you say there's a chance, well, everything is relative irrational. i'm not talking about speculation and a fraud and the craziness. but of course there is all the craziness. of course there is all the speculation, but the problem is that it's all necessary, it's off and necessary part of global capitalism. having this kind of crazy financial system is actually an essential part of capitalism. >> let me turn that question. want to come back to it even further later on. but where you're going with this notion and the disciplining aspects of it with regard to the working class and also there's a point in the textbook, in you
the rate of the average inflation in the economy. so what you did is, number one, you had a supreme court ruling that it was in the best interests of the country to take away the liberty of individuals. and the congress had actually gone outside of the enumerated powers -- which lists very specifically what the congress can do -- and yet the supreme court held up the abandonment of the enumerated powers. and also the trumping of the tenth amendment. >> host: why -- when it comes to the commerce clause, you used that with supreme court justice elena kagan, and you reprint that testimony, your back and forth with elena kagan in "the debt bomb." what was the question you asked can her about fruits and vegetables? >> well, the question i asked is could the government tell you, mandate to you how many fruits and vegetables you would eat a day? and it really arises is what's the role for the government in terms of our lives? can, in fact, the commerce clause be viewed so widely as what was done in filburn v. united states, can it be interpreted so widely that we could eventually get to the poin
will have a fundamentally adverse impact on the global economy spent it's doing it now with china and japan. that's interesting, as you've got two of the biggest economies in the world in a nightmare situation that raises a fundamental question, and it's of ending this myth that economics draws people closer together. part of the title today is "mischief or miscalculation?." during the cold war, what was interesting is you can have 17 different spheres of contact with the soviets and if two and if to implement you it's about 15 others. there was a lot of heavy investment figuring out how to communicate and how to coordinate, how to deal with escalation, how do you talk about that. and in this era, when i look at the amount of time, particularly in the obama administration, even more so than the george w. bush of administration, you look at senior officials who go to asia, throughout the region, and also the discussion and attempt to courtney with china. there seems to be a lot of that to try to coordinate. but again coming back to jim steinberg was the fourth member of this panel would happ
when, as we all recall, our economy was thriving. under the senate-passed plan, a family earning $255,000 a year would pay an extra 150 bucks in taxes. in opposing the middle-class tax cuts act, republicans claim that it would hurt the economy to raise tax rates on the top 2% of income earners. speaker boehner reiterated that line last week, saying, "it will hurt small businesses. it will hurt the economy." well, that is vintage republican political theory but it's just not supported by the facts. in a recent report, the nonpartisan congressional budget office estimated that extending the middle-class tax cuts would boost our national g.d.p., our gross domestic product, by 1.25% next year. it said the economic effects of extending only the middle-class rates are similar to those of extending all of the rates. why? because upper-income taxpayers are less likely to spend their tax savings back into the economy. in other words, c.b.o. reports we would get virtually no economic bang for our federal buck by extending the upper-income tax cuts the republicans are fighting for. c.b.o.'s anal
. businesses are starting at higher rate than any time in our history. this economy is on the right track. we are equipping britain for the global race and on like the party opposite we are in the side of people who work hard and want to do the right thing. what is the answer? more borrowing, more spending, more of the things that got us into this mess in the first place. >> mr. speaker, years ago the nhs spent five hundred million pounds on tamiflu without seeing the day on the effectiveness or safety and rather than being an isolated case it is normal for the drug industry to have almost complete control over the evidence based upon which crucial public decisions are made. will the prime minister asked to make available the full chemical study reports on tamiflu so the doctors, patients and taxpayers are not misled? >> my hon. friend does excellent work on behalf of the taxpayer through all of the very good questions and work that he does. he raises an important issue not only because of the cost to the taxpayer but also because of possible overstatement of benefits to patients. there does
the power of the central bank to influence the economy so the question facing today as a dead to much to compensate for the political arena where nothing has been done? >> we are in a situation of the thirties and listen driven home to many economists that the great mistake was in the 1930's with the federal reserve thereto late to was there easing and under those particular circumstances, i hope that less than it is not so imbedded but you could argue the traditional powers of the federal reserve would be exhausted. maybe one or two in the toolbox but nothing dramatic. but we have to rely upon others or the low return and animal spirit to keep the economy going. were the great financial expansion with the housing market have been 10 japan still fully with europe and the lesson here is how we let the excess of the housing and member those days you talk about the property around the imperial palace in tokyo? 200 acres was equal to all real-estate of california. that was very old school to talk about it. >> when you talk to fed officials. >> i am off the record. [laughter] >> host: but
about it except continually make the economy work while we let the liberals destroyed and then we come in every two years and fix it. but right now -- [applause] common sense is viewed as intolerant. the nicest thing you can say to somebody no matter who it is is to get a job. the nicest thing you can say. when you're walking down the street and there's a guy panhandling and you say get a job, you're complimenting him. you are saying that you have the will and the means to get a job. but now these days if you say that, you are seen as mean and intolerant to assume people have the power to act of their own volition. that is where we are at now, that we can think of ourselves as a person he can take care of themselves. you are a bigot. i never thought i would see compassionate conservative thing. do you remember that? the hat fell off. the compassionate conservative is redundant. being a conservative is being compassionate. it just takes the extra check for people to realize they're in believing something that is better for them. calling somebody a compassionate conservative is like call
for the next many years. the amazing work you did with all of us on fuel economy standards and enforcing the clean their act, which i just want to say unfortunately those two are not candidate dress. if they were here, i would address them. colleagues here and others stopped many who try to roll back the clean air act as it pertained to missions coming from utility and other polluters. i was critical because we want to be much more direct. i don't speak for anybody else on how we approach this. i just feel people have to understand that the promise that we made and we have initial studies show the progress we've made only because we fight so hard rolling back of my colleagues on the other side but the environmental writer after environmental writer. and if they don't see from superstore and sandy, the future if we just go along, i am very disturbed for our children and our grandchildren. i just want to thank you, senator whitehouse for your amazing leadership day after day. people don't know every time they see me. i so agree with you and with your determination. rhode island is very det
in one area for economy of force. they're going to be dispersed to be effective, and that requires a lot more presence. it depends on how scoped i think our national command authority says this is exactly what i want you to do with the mission set. that'll probably drive, okay, it won't be guys like me, it'll be joint staffers who are doing the real science and math on this on exactly what formations, what capabilities, and, therefore, how many civilians and military need to remain. i think that if you go to one end of the spectrum and go with just a few thousand soldiers, that's not enough to really secure yourself or do either too well. i think that's what my own research is doing. talking to a lot of smarter people in the week here in the capital region. if you go very large, you could run the risk of having the security forces from afghanistan become too reliant in those areas upon us because we're there taking care of them. i think they can be mitigated, i really do. there's got to be a really good, i think, science to exactly how you approach troops to task based upon the missions
will be able to be more prosperous and able to help others protect our economy from reckless and dangerous spending that is going on now, and that we protect the integrity of our legal system from erosion. i conclude this treaty is unnecessary and dangerous as to our sovereignty. so let's do more for the disabled worldwide. i will be supportive of that. an international organization -- i think the chair. i yield the floor. let me include one more thing. i am starting to view that we as a nation need to be more legally aware of the dangers of signing agreements with foreign nations to regulate internal affairs, even if it's not -- we are not giving weaker powers. i just don't think it's necessary. i think the past that. i'm opposed to that. i think in the long run we will have difficulty. mr. president, i yield the floor and reserve the balance of my time and my colleagues would like to speak on this matter. >> [inaudible] >> mr. president, i recognize the senator from arizona for seven minutes. >> the senator from arizona. mr. president, i come to the i've come to the floor with a bit of h
been sittingr hands on the sidelines in an increasingly global and dynamic economy. this is the first administration actually since f.d.r. not to ask for the ability to negotiate trade agreements using expedited procedures. and this is something unique, trade promotion authority in order to negotiate agreements. this administration has yet to even ask for it over the last four years. last year we finally passed the korea, panama and colombia export agreements. hopefully our bipartisan actions today to boost exports to russia will signal a new chapter, for us to engage as a congress and with the administration in a much more ambitious and proactive trade policy. i'm pleased this bipartisan bill received such broad support from republicans and democrats in the house, getting 365 votes, and i urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to now support this legislation before us. thank you, madam president. i yield the floor. a senator: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from michigan is recognized. mr. levin: madam president, i understand now under the existing unanimou
with their own economy and deal with their own people internationally. so i think that generally there's a feeling that we might be some hope there. however, we are approaching a potential violation of the u.n. security council resolution and we encourage the leadership in north korea to consider what they're doing on the overall security environment on the peninsula as well as in asia. >> did you follow up anything new? we been hearing rumblings for a time. anything new you can provide in terms of insight into lunches are things like that? >> i think you're tracking it pretty well for the media today there are indications of what they will call a satellite launch. we believe it is still the u.n. security resolutions because of the missile they'll be fired and the implications it has for ballistic missiles activity somewhere down the road and the destabilizing impact it will have on the security environment throughout the region, not just dependent. >> can you follow up on some of that? what is your assessment? they say they saw birth of her problems at their failed launch. what is you
in the midst of an act of collective subtlety in which the wall street dragged america and the world economy under their funeral pyre i realize sullivan had nothing kidding at all and instead of writing prophecy and disguised wisdom as whimsy and failed to include surefire ways not to get rich majoring -- or becoming a professional mandolin player, two of the most obvious ways of all if not becoming rich. first, believing anything that anybody at anytime says on wall street. and second, from my perspective most important come, investing as i did your entire life savings in a 401(k) run by aol-time warner. now as well as a contributing editor to the boat and the father of the lot of books he is co-author along with his long-suffering wife suzanne of two incredibly talented children, louise and extraordinary singer and musician who i hope will make it here this evening and sam, who is currently attending yale which bob tells me is a four year institution in either hartford or new haven. let me begin our discussion by pointing out the fitting miss of discussing my american revolution here on de

, that are gravely benefiting from the skewed balance of the economy in the current situation. i just want to give one example of one of the many, many things that could be done. there's one thing we all understand in this room which is corporate responsibility. it's not just a company that gets fined or the bank. but it's also senior manage; the people who were actually personally responsible for the bad decisions. we have sanctioned hundreds of iranian companies, but most of the ceos and the senior managers of those companies, who are often times -- because we identified the link -- members or former members of the revolutionary guard. the senior manager, ceos, former revolutionary guard, and they are not sanctioned, free to travel, and free to have bank accounts in malaysia and switzerland and all the places where they're still able to move about. we should go after them as well and make it known the iranians that our sanctions are not going after ordinary people but after the regime. >> i'd like to open it up to questions from the audience. we have 25 minutes left. and please, when i call on y

a little sick about that bit. the economy around braille is pushing a lot of people to think about all the other forms, particularly the digital forms that are now available. many people still speak braille, use braille, create brail at the printers and spongees that are part of the braille language, we are seeing many younger leaders not use braille but rather use obviously all of the other audio and connective forms that there are in terms of communication. so many of the hand-held devices, many of them have speaking capabilities and audio capabilities and i am not going to make predictions about braille but we are seeing less and less of it. it is interesting as we talk about the transition of rail and the movement of braille to other forms one of our challenges is we have many transitions in the world of talking books. transition from braille to all the other forms. the transition from the old cassette tapes which is a technology that the national library service of the blind will stop completely at the beginning of next year. they won't be producing anything in those taped forms.

. the economy around braille is, i think, pushing a lot of people to think about all the other forms, particularly the digital form the novel. while many people still speak grill, use braille to mccrery brill, as the printers and the punches that are part of the braille language, we are seeing, i think, many elderly years not use braille but rather use obviously all of the other audio and connected forms that there are in terms of communication. so many of the hand-held devices have speaking capabilities and audio capabilities. on not to make any predictions about brail, but i think we are seeing less and less of it. it is interesting as we talk about the transition of braille and the movement. one of our challenges is that we have many transitions in the world talking books. the transition from braille to all the other forms. the transition from the old cassette tapes, which is a technology that the national lover service will stop completely at the beginning of next year. there will be producing anything in those tips forms. that will be done. and in most people's personal lives ca
in the iranian economy, with energy and shipbuilding and shipping and the ports, this amendment that would shut down businesses that are involved in sectors which fund the proliferation activities of iran, of that regime is crucial. in addition, the amendment is going to prohibit business with all designated persons connected to the iranian government. it bans trades in commodities used in these key sectors. it's designed to stop iran from busting sanctions by receiving payment in the gold or using oil payments in local currency then to buy gold. and we've got to stop an effort to water down these sanctions. i say that because i remember the votes in the past. i, i remember our effort on the central bank. it was only because we got the unanimous votes frankly, that we got so much support, that we were able to deploy those, but let me add that there is another portion of the amendment here that targets the regime for their human rights abuses. and i think one of the areas where we really have been short, for those of you who have talked, those of you who have been in the prisons there, that expe
scientific things that may or may not be true but a bad idea for the economy. so that sounds a little pessimistic and i'm really not a pessimist at heart but i am -- i consider it unlikely circumstances that exist when rachel carson wrote silent spring and allowed it to have the influence that it did and i don't dig it will occur any time soon. >> one must question. we have some university students in the audience and didn't get much of a chance to talk about what it was like to pursue science in rachel carson? were there some barriers because of her gender? >> there were barriers. a woman who wanted to get a college education in the 1920s was generally thought to these pursuing that for her own personal betterment, and not for the purpose of having a career. it was to become a better wife, better homemaker, a better mother in the future. that was the object of post-secondary education, primarily. women could go into the teaching profession so carson certainly could have been a teacher and she could have taught biology or writing in the future. that would have been a career avenue tha

headquarters in football stadiums although for the economy. it's usually where i get fed up. what if you guys done? [inaudible] >> yet, soccer. so they say that cheney spoke a foot stadium. what has america done for us? i will admit in a pillowcase comment i was frustrated by that and say americans invent and how thick dignities and education and the fact that there are young people alive to watch football is largely because of the people of the united states. that's kind of her difference. we've chosen a path of investment, human capital. it pays off in the long term rather than the immediacy of a football stadium. we've seen over the past several years 30 plus% decline in hiv/aids. that's not exclusively in the united states feared where the largest contributor to the end is something we should be proud of. it's huge that people in africa have that. >> last weekon monday or senator kirsten gillibrand delivered testimony on the hill and told stories of families who lost children to hurricane cindy. those hit hardest by the film testified by the senate environment and public works committee.
economy, every developing economy that is not hydrocarbon rich. and you're absolutely right, there is a confluence of interests between russia and iran. these two countries form a north/south axis whereas kazahkstan, turkmenistan and countries all the way east to china and western europe or europe comprise an east/west axis, the corridor through which oil, gas but also industrial goods, ideas and information can flow. um, the russian situation is not dissimilar. the russian situation in europe with gas is similar to iranian or saudi situation with oil. it's all about market share. >> right. >> so if you have azerbaijanny gas, turkmen gas competing with european gas or russian gas, for that matter lng from algeria, it may drive the market share down, it may drive the prices down, and europe is really at a, at a crossroads because they need to decide whether to go with natural gas or continue with coal and continue with nuclear. so gas plays a strategic energy role in europe right now. and you asked about what can we do. >> that's the most important crux of all of -- >> trilli

and nightclubs for the sake of the economy. when we talk about islamists, we have to take note that some islamists are different than others and some will naturally have today more pragmatic affair in a position of power. i'll stop there. >> rob, do you want to kick that went off? >> i have a couple thoughts. this is also connected to another slippery ice pick to the argument. if on the one hand -- if on the one hand people -- islamists it will people of faith, everyone on the other side are liberals. i don't believe i ever use that term in anything i say. the opposite of islamists is not islamists. there's a huge spectrum of people who will run into the streets because they are like the kia network, not at what their life is going to be like under islamists will. they go from radical communists on one hand to western oriented liberals on the other. and indeed, many people of faith, millions of people of faith. five times a day, praying the psalms as opposed to many people who are the ham and cheese eating muslims. they are all fair. i see the natural audience is. it's everyone has a pos
believes if we do not address our debt issue, our nations economy will suffer in the fiscal crisis. they must come together as a nation to fix the definitive comprehensive bipartisan plans, including progrowth action reform, spending and entitlement. humana is involved in campaign to fix the dead from the bread bowls and simpson and that was a group of state and policy leaders. we believe the campaign will make a difference in pushing congress smartly and responsibly to the comprehensive deal. and i encourage each one of you to get involved to fix the debt.org. if you take any information not presented to talk to you about it. in the meantime, recognize health care plays a significant role in our nation's spending. controlling health care costs is linked directly to our fiscal security. we are to spend 16% our gdp in the u.s. for this we have lower life expectancy. with higher infant mortality than many developed nations. we are much more obese. we overuse medical services. much more the u.s. has 26.6 mris [inaudible] that compares to 6.8 unit. chronic illnesses prevalent and is ra
of mexico. just a fact. and the mexican's economy is highly dependent on remittances from mexican workers in the united states. so, logically speaking, if we want to speak about logic, the obvious solution to the problem of, quote, illegal mexican immigration, the logical solution is rerace the border and create one state. [applause] >> now, there are people in this room who applaud that. and -- and -- and-to be honest, developed a real affinities for burritos, so, i'm not particularly appalled at the idea. and spanish people at least from latin america tend to be very generous with north americans. if you speak a couple words of terrible spanish and english, they're very nice about it. don't ask that the parissans when you try too speak french. so on all those counts only not opposed to the idea of eliminating the border. but if you're a political activist, if you're trying to reach a broad public on the question of mexican immigration, is there even a snowball's chance in hell advocating one state is going reach the public? even though it's completely logical. it is. it's completely sen
